derrick stembridge from nashville, tennessee is the brain behind the new release on tonAtom and he weaves a tight web from beatless and atmospheric ambiences which - unlike other artists' deliberately combined ambient sound layers - unveil obvious structures and a clear sound design. drifting in silence creates the space needed for associations and harmonic melodies, somewhere in between of brian eno and the highly appreciated geir "biosphere" jenssen. at first ladderdown makes you...

sometimes a journey to places where you've once lived is a kind of a time travel. alejandro takes us with him on a journey into his personal past. this trip inspired him of 20 tracks of glitches, elektro leads and konsumprodukt-style samples. and sometimes, when you return from a trip like this, you have some souvenirs for your friends. so: this is your "radio souvenir" !

no, we don't select our artists by their homecountry, though it sometimes seems to look like this... sektor's "the dark side of the moon" is a great set of six tracks and this is the reason for electing him for this release. fresh, exceptional and independent. to extend the list of the tonAtom artists-countries with bulgaria is a nice side-effect. so prepare to explore a new country, well actually a real new world through your ears with this release. so welcome to the world of sounds...

trickform has achieved a brilliant reputation among the audience and the reviewers of tonAtom since his first tonatom release in mid 2003. so the year 2006 starts out with a new tonAtom release by trickform. his "thema" (topic) leads us from "freude" (delight) to "freiheit" (freedom). and it doesn't matter that we have to overcome "ungewissheit" (uncertainty) and "unsicherheit" (insecurity) as long as we are accompanied by his beautiful melodies...

sometimes you are afraid, that a loud noise or a wrong chosen word could do harm to this music just the same way you could harm the wing of a dragonfly with an awkward move. nq's (who tells us his real name this time, but this doesn't really matter) world of sounds is fragile and narrowed. delicately woven rhythms made from tiny drumsounds and the reverberation of pads and voices blend to subtle sound formations, both disturbing and intriguing. after his longplay-cd-release "recording...

tenAtom - the jubilee tonAtom celebrates itself with the release of tenAtom, the tenth issue in a series of colorful mini-cds. 21 minutes playing time and 9 past releases demand for a compilation as a retrosprective of the last year. two minutes had to be enough for each artist and everyone delivered an exclusive miniature. a tour de force through the tonAtom styles. and for those, who have not yet discovered tonAtom, this jubilee is surely one of the best ways to jump on the train.

"the contrasts of force and beauty" - this is how it says in the about section of env(itre)s website. and rarely an artist described his own music so briefly and so comprehensively. env (itre) creates marvelous organisms made of sound and provides them with stable exoskeletons made from beats and noises. and we have the chance to observe them consecutively, each just for a few minutes.

even a bit darker and more morbid than the initial release: the second e.p. by gerd neusser and jürgen rieger. the straight beats remain but it has grown colder in the realm of the sternenspringer. the e.p. title is a first indication for that and it is continued within the atmospheres of the four tracks. icy textures and tricky rhythmic elements fill the range, that sternenspringer span in each track. a movie for the big screen in four aural scenes.

"tattwa" is different but typical of env(itre). pads between warm and cold combined with flexible and unusual beats take us on a journey through the five elements, or tattwas.

"licht" [tonAtom.037] were used as a starting point for five new, individual tracks. not just simple remixes, but "re-do"s. some sounds and sequences return in these tracks, but within a completely new context. not a remix-cd but a different "licht".

there are different ways of dealing with fall-/winterdepressions. we present probably one of the most pleasant ways: kazooo turns them into totally beautiful, dremlike downtemp-tracks to share them with us. though the tracks are meditative they stay away from "new age" magniloquence through kazooo's keen sense for beats even in colder climates. meandering but not monotonous, stress-reliefing but not drowsy. the positive proof that kazooo does master more than the dancefloor.

the simplicity principle it is definitely unusual, this second release by store (-> retinascan) on tonAtom. acoustic and calm. hypnotic and earthy. guitar, drums und bass guitar go through a reincarnation as samples. a new facet of the work of this fascinating artist. deep and beautiful.

a remarkable release by a remarkable new artist on tonAtom. apart from the clicks'n'cuts esthetics trickform, a sound artist from dresden, germany presents four tracks on his e.p. goomeda. four tracks one could describe (if this was politically correct nowadays) simply as beautiful. what we would never do off course. the basic elements are as simple as difficult: flowing harmonies, warm and dark sounds, driving and elaborate rhythms and on top fragile melodies. it is recommended to press the...

"sternenspringer" is an album that is "self-titled" by design. these 8 tracks define, what sternenspringer is about, how sternenspringer sound like. an acoustic and stylistic positioning after more than four years and more than four releases for tonAtom. matured, sophisticated, self-assured and with a reliable sense of a style of their own.

fa:ded a.m. is electronic. and it is slightly closer to conventional listening, as you might expect from tonAtom. and it is intelligent and absorbing, for headphones, offices and cars. tonAtom presents es:ef: aka sascha freihals, a new entry to the netaudio world worth listening to. as a quick start we recommend "marketplace at 7.pm", then probably the title track and then the whole e.p....

celebrating four years of tonAtom. took more than one year to create. by establishing an international netaudio chain letter. of 16 artists. creating individual tracks. and passing the last 30 seconds on to the next on the list. finally combined to one single mix. resulting in 55 minutes of tonAtom label sound. for both: the beginner and the connoisseur.

kAzooo presents five "clicked" tracks between couch-athmosphere and straight adrenaline (although it is actually a kAzooo-home-brew surrogate). be sure: the records title is its motto. enough words, go on: download, sit down and listen. and you might as well shake your tired leg (but before - please make sure, the dog is safe). no risks implied but lots of side effects - just feel good.

extra drei his third release on tonAtom or just three new tracks - the release titel fits both. the important thing about it is that there is a new aljen release and the good things we have got used to still remain. aljen (=aleksander jensko) has chosen to make it not easy for casual listeners (but why should he anyway) with tracks of up 11 minutes length. but the reward is that those tracks are that large and deep so that it is a pleasure to be "in" them, to enjoin their atmosphere...

intelligent elektro from macedonia, this is in short, what bobikrug from skopje presents on this e.p. sequences and athmosperic pads which are dark, driving and enriched with catchy samples lead you through a new style of elektro. this style both knows its musical history but manages to go one step beyond.
